Last Chance to Nominate Your Animal Welfare Heroes

09 December 2015

UK - The end of the nomination stage for this year’s Ceva Animal Welfare Awards is fast approaching. Time is running out to nominate farming professionals, vets, volunteers and charity workers deserving of recognition for their worthy contributions to animal welfare.

Ceva are urging communities to help identify and celebrate the people in their local areas who work to help better the lives of animals.

Nominations can be freely submitted online at

The deadline for nominations is 11 January 2016, after which entries will be judged by a panel of esteemed industry professionals, including Christopher Laurence MBE BVSc. A shortlist will be drawn and successful entrants will be invited to an awards ceremony which will once again be taking place at BSAVA.

Ginette Bryant, Corporate Communications & CSR Manager at Ceva, hopes to build on the legacy of the previous awards in celebrating outstanding individuals, she said: "The awards offer the chance to celebrate individuals and organisations that work tirelessly to better the lives of others. By nominating you are not only offering deserved recognition for the individual or organisation, you are also supporting their wider cause and providing a platform for them to talk about their achievements. Previously, the awards have recognised some outstanding work being carried out globally by organisations and individuals and we know that there are many deserving individuals still out there."
